I was recently invited to speak in Dr. Anuradha Mukherji’s Urban Planning class. She is getting her students to collect data and produce a map mashup to display the data. My role as guest lecturer was to talk about mashups, map mashups, and provide information and resources for someone wanting to produce a map with no programming requirements.

Shown via SlideShare, the following slides were presented at a March 18, 2001 Office of Faculty Excellence workshop. Professor Lee Toderick (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I co-presented on the topic of best practices for incorporating East Carolina University’s Virtual Computing Lab.
